This review is from: Scrabble Timer (Toy)
This scrabble timer is a very useful accessory, allowing you to choose the time limit from 3 mins,2 mins and 1 minute. It adds to the pressure of the game, and significantly reduces the boredom. Gone are the days when we had to wait in desperation and frustration for our turn to begin!! However, it is not as enjoyable when your the one being pressurised to create a word in time!!
There are also frequent warnings in the form of red light flashes, and slightly shorter beeps. It is best to not enforce the 'go before the final beep' rule too strictly, be lenient, and allow them an extra 15 seconds, so they still take their turn almost immediately afterwards.
Overall, a truly must-have product at a very reasonable price. No more rows or arguments over the timing procedures: wonderful!!
